Glitch Retro Arcade Bar: what do users think?
Brent Barnett: FunFun place
Artemis Lune: This was the second time that I went to this bar with friends, and I must say: It's still a very fun, atmospheric, and friendly establishment! The smash burgers were delicious, the drinks stellar, and the game availability (for both the arcade and the consoles) was delightful.I highly recommend getting their Do Good Things Burger with the fries (if you like the legendary mushrooms and gooey Swiss cheese combo), as well as "The Frenchie", which nearly knocked my socks clean off in terms of drink strength.Thanks for giving me and my friends a place to make wonderful memories in. We will be sure to return soon. :)
Victoria Koutstaal: Lots of fun! The burger was good, drinks were mediocre.
F. S.: It's an old arcade that with poor quality food and they stuck a bar in there lol. On top of that they check your bags when you come in, so ladies better hide anything personal and bring rubbing alcohol to sanitize your purse items as they don't wear gloves.
Ronnie Hung: Had a wonderful experience here playing arcade games and the drinks were fantastic. I just wouldn't recommend the food here as it was just mediocre and barely fast food quality but if you're just out for drinks with friends this is a great place to go. And not to mention their ladies washroom is a must visit!Update: they have added burgers which were pretty good!
Cheyenne John: Best to reserve a table when they have a DJ that night, if you want to play video games at a table. Love all the nostalgic video/arcade games. Definitely going again!
Arpit Gulati: They don't have a whole lot of arcade games. Good for a first date night. Tuesdays are trivia nights so make sure you book in. Smash burgers I heard are pretty awesome but I never got to try. Will go again just for burgers :)
Alexander Vyse: Ashley made my birthday an experience of a lifetime. I’m from northern BC, small town and the city is intimidating. Ashley made me feel like I was having a good time with good friends in a parents basement. If this place is an option, do not hesitate. Please go
Passports Hand: Fun place! Very few tables,Be sure to book ahead, or it won’t be as much fun without a comfy table.
Mikey T: Yummy burgers
Alex McDonald: Good drink choice and the burgers are fantastic! Could use some more arcade games though
V B: Amazing service and delicious food!
Stephanie Vu: This arcade offers a fun experience of playing games while drinking with your friends. The experience of playing Wii Sports while sitting at our table was amusing. However, the selection of games is limited, and it gets repetitive and boring after a while. A few games were out of order as well. The space is very small, so when it gets crowded, there’s lots of standing around while waiting for games to become available.The drink menu is massive. The staff were very helpful. However, the food is expensive for smaller portions and it wasn’t that great either, so I’d recommend eating elsewhere beforehand or afterwards. The drinks were great!
lai Lai: Great food great drinks
Fred Raputznik: What a fun joint! As a legit Gen-Xer, it’s been great to see classic arcades make a big, licensed comeback, and Glitch really delivers on the retro fun! Go early to grab a seat, as this place gets a-buzzing quickly. A wonderful experience.
Shaida Joukar: fun! snacks were great, some drinks were over priced, but staff were really friendly and helpful! the games didn’t have any tickets to collect and stuff. would be nice to have that for incentive to keep playing! would love to come back on a weekday when it’s not busy
Kyna Ng: Fun times and a really cool retro throwback ambience. Fun games and a nice place to host an informal social or hang out with friends. Smash burger was pretty decent, but didn’t really stand out. Prompt service.
Kyara Innocent: Such a fun and amazing place!
David O'Connor: Great bar with huge selection of colourful drinks. Attentive staff with great burgers on offer. Can't possibly play all the games in one night so will have to come back again. 10/10 thank you glitch.
Doruk Sahinoz: Original place. Must see
Geena Johansson: Always a good place to take friends for a few hours. Staff is friendly, drinks are great, burgers are tasty, the arcade hits our N64 nostalgia just right.

Alibi Room: what do users think?
Debi kim Birss: Was here many years ago in my clubbing days...today it's a chill place with great menu and drink choices. Nice outside seating to enjoy summer nites. We be back again. Love the beet Humus so good. Kiss the chef!
John Francois: Busy spot, reasonably priced for Van and staff were super friendly. Would go again
Layla Kim: Hidden gem!💎
J Lovemore: Always a great vibe
Lynx Chase: Updated:The first time I came here, although the food and drink were great, I had a bit of an unsavoury experience with customer service based on an internal miscommunication which I mentioned in my first review that I had left with three stars, explaining what had happened.They replied right away and offered a visit on the house, saying I should email them to set it up. I spontaneously went tonight, however I hadn’t reached out to management yet to arrange anything. Since I enjoyed the food and drinks during my last visit, I didn’t mind going back and paying since I genuinely liked what I ordered.When I walked in I guess they must have recognized me from The photo I have on my Google profile and said that my visit would be covered.Anyways I very much appreciate that they offered this to make up for the misunderstanding from my last visit, it was very considerate and kind of them. The service was great this time; food and drink once again amazing.I got the braised short rib which was phenomenal and so tender, didn’t even need a knife to cut through the meat. The drink I got I think was called the bourbon renewal, which is the one with cassis. It is an Excellent cocktail and I highly recommend for any bourbon lovers out there.I will definitely be back here. Much appreciation to the management for following up 🏼
Ally Courtney: An amazing venue to throw an engagement party! Geoff, Allister (sp?) and the staff were amazing from start to finish. They made sure our guests were well looked after and made sure that myself, my fiance, and our family felt very special. Would highly recommend. Thanks Alibi room!
Natasha Jaswal: Hosted a networking event for 40 people on the bottom floor for my company and it was such a great vibe, amazing staff and a pleasure to work with everyone at Alibi Room. Highly recommend hosting any of your events here. Thank you so much for everything!
stephen milton: Often busy, but the atmosphere is great, and the staff are lovely.
Rodolfo Jose Quilantan Tapia: Perfect for a chill atmosphere
JJ: This is my first time here, and we had a great time . We sit by the bar, and we lenjoyed it. Our servicer, Blaize, was very knowledgeable and friendly. She knows everything about the beer and the food . We were amazed by how much she knew about everything on the menu. She is super nice and outgoing. We ordered craft beer , a couple flights. The wings we ordered were delicious and loved our beer. We will definitely invite our friends and come back again.
Mahsa Al: I liked the atmosphere, but there is not much on the menu. The quality was okay but quite expensive. I also ordered a cocktail, which was nice.
Glenn Hickey: Good food and beer , had to wait over 45 minutes with only 2 people before us ?
R.A.M: Is the most dirty restaurant disgusting food and beer and restaurant smelling so bad
Harrison Richer: They are more than happy to seat you right away
Chere Croteau: Just stopped for drinks. As always great service and welcoming. Left just as it was getting busy.
Vasisht Raghavendra: Dinner with a bunch of friends meeting after a long time. Started with a round of drinks - Beer flight, wine, rum and a couple non alcoholic drinks. For starters, we ordered Chicken Wings and the Patatas Brava(Pan Fried Potatoes in Chipotle sauce) which were good. The best dish was the Primavera Risotto which is also a vegetarian option. This was the highlight of the dinner menu and was unlike any Primavera we had tried before. Very delicious! We also ordered the Vegetarian Burger and it was good too.
Julie “Chronfused” Barrera: Fab friendly service with a stellar selection of taps and snacks. Made a reservation and got such a nice table saved for us. They didn’t hover but also didn’t leave us untended to in the least.
aut jen: Andy was such a great server! I had the short rib off the Fresh Sheet and it was 11/10Amazing atmosphere and the best accommodations for my 10 friends and I. You rock Alibi Room. Stay sexy ◡̈
jasonsalwayshungry: @jasonsalwayshungry Alibi room always brings the quality sour beers im after, but this crispy Pork Belly Sandwich with hoisin glaze, cabbage & carrot ginger-sesame slaw and jalapeño jam was beaming quality 2 pieces of pork belly over lapping perfect crisp on the pork and a flavour that took this sando easily into 9.2/10 rockets🚀 #gastown #vancouver #britishcolumbia #alibiroom #alwayshungry #foodcritic #foodie #porkbelly #vancouverfoodie #vancouvereats
Karan Verma: This is an awesome location within a charming and historic building. The seating options are diverse and the atmosphere is fantastic. Their menu of food and drinks offers a wide range of impressive choices. I decided to try something new and ordered the pork belly burger, which was absolutely delicious. Additionally, the fries were cooked to perfection and had an excellent flavor. The service was prompt and friendly. Overall, a superb place in Gastown that I'll definitely return to in the future.
Kieryn Murphy: Amazing food, great beer & friendly service!! Lovely atmosphere, love the trains rattling pass & being a little away from the touristy crowds

Guilt & Co: what do users think?
Ziegfried Von Shrodder: Came here on Sunday, May 21st with my wife, and from the time we talked in to getting seated, we had excellent friendly service that I have not had in a while. I believe our servers name was Bradley. Super friendly guy who was attentive, I can tell they were very busy because it was a PACKED house and the music was off the charts. Western style tonight with an 1940’s flare, and bar tenders were quick and attentive as well. Highly Recommend this place. Glad we checked their online calendar for the type of music that was performing and playing tonight. If you get Bradley as your server you are lucky to have him. Staff are very professional even with the drunk idiots in the crowd! I’m sure every restaurant gets those! Check this place out! I highly recommend!
Amarjot Pabla: Been to this place many times. In the past, have enjoyed myself, but unfortunately tonight we experienced some unprofessional behavior. The man at the front, as we were exiting, stopped his coworker from stamping us for re-entry as he decided for us “because we would not be re-entering”. Not sure if this is a policy Guilt&Co has now, but from my past experiences, paying cover allows for re-entry later on. Kind of sad to see a place that I truly enjoyed fall to some horrible customer service. Maybe Guilt & Co can speak to this issue. Is re-entry not allowed after paying the same cover as everyone else in line? Kind of sad to see one of my favorite places in Vancouver fall to this type of behavior. I have so many good memories here, but unfortunately overshadowed by this staff member’s behavior.Followed up by going to Smith’s. Great staff, friendly, genuinely kind people. Highly recommend.**edit: I had a back and forth with the owner because I wanted to clarify some details. I received thoughtful responses and it seems like they are taking situations like this seriously. It’s nice to see that they are trying to improve. I have upped my star rating because of this and I hope the next time I visit, the staff will be as respectful and kind as I’m used to!
Suzette McFaul: Terrible experience. Was asked to leave as someone in my party was intoxicated. Not falling down or obxious. Maybe profiled because of age? Yes certainly older than average person. But really? Sad and disappointed tonight.
Federico baldacci: Great music plus great staff = great environment
David Geiman: Adoramos o lugar! Tinha uma banda ótima tocando e bons drinks!
Ricky Au: Fun live music that really makes you get up and dance. Their baked brie is so creamy and tasty too!
Bunny Brown: Cozy cave-like lounge with live music and great apps! Staff are friendly and accommodating. Indie entertainment here is great!
Linney Sylvester: Excellent vibes and dimly lit underground live music venue. The charge $6 per set of music. Drinks can be a bit pricey and the food is a limited, but the music is always good and so are the staff! I recommend happy hour to save a few bucks. I'd except to spend about $100 a person if u stay for few drinks and a few sets and snacks to share
Caitlin Carter: Drinks were unique and tasty, but they were overpriced and our server was rude.
T Gomez: Really enjoyed the live music and tasty drinks!
Kait B: Great cozy live music venue. Staff were great, up front and helpful when I contacted them beforehand to address some access needs. Grounds for Divorce cocktail is hands down one of the best drinks I've ever had! One star lost only because I'd expected more of the food, and there were some issues with my guest receiving their meal in a timely manner due to poor planning on the part of the kitchen.
Gabriela Ganancio: I recently visited Guilt to celebrate my birthday, and while the waitress who served us was good and very attentive, unfortunately, the evening got off to a bad start due to the unfriendly and rude staff/lady at the door. The staff member at the door seemed disinterested in providing even basic customer service and was unwelcoming from the start.Despite my attempts to engage in conversation and let the staff know that it was my birthday, they showed no interest and didn't even wish me a happy birthday. The staff member's negative attitude left a bad taste in my mouth and made me feel unappreciated and unwelcome.I hope that the management takes note of my complaints and takes steps to ensure their staff provides better customer service in the future. Birthdays are special occasions, and it's disappointing that my experience was marred by such poor treatment by this lady.Ps: Music it was very good!
stephen milton: Best atmosphere in Gastown. Good music, good service, and good vibes.
Marcel Laforge: Dope vibes
Filip Rerek: Excellent cocktails, live music, great appetizers and cool vibe! There's a cover charge to support the musicians which is a great idea :) Ms. Dos Santos was one of the most talented musicians we've ever listened to live!!! Keep the great music and exquisite cocktails going ;)P.S. the mezcal sour with an egg white on top was 10/10 and so was the garlic bread.
Tyler MacLeod: Great music venue for different tastes
Jason Kjorlien: Shopping ,a few restaurants & pubs nearby
Simran Gill: I have throughly enjoyed this place every time that I have been to it. I love how they encourage the works of local artists. It’s open everyday and hosts two shows- the early & the late show. They are both equally great. There is no reservation required as its first come first serve basis. You might end up sharing the table or standing at the bar as they try to accommodate as many people as possible. The food is average but the drinks are great. Definitely one of the must-dos in Vancouver!
Kajol Parikh: It was so loud, the drinks were okayish, the whole place too dark and a wait of 35 mins for all this!
Man Z.: Great place!
Sean Carey: Was not informed we’d be charged “per set”for cover charge. Was given the short straw, getting charged $12 for hearing 5 minutes of the first set. Waiting 40 minutes while the band took a break, and hearing 1-2 songs of the next set of the same Maroon 5 wannabe band, and getting charged another $12.All told I paid $24 to listen to ten minutes worth of music with my partner, at $20 a drink too. Maybe part of the cover is the set you hear in line while all the people who “know” someone who works there cut you. I am pretty sure the homies were being charged cover at all. Pretty disappointed.

The Narrow Lounge: what do users think?
Amirhossein Tavakoli: Great vibe! Hands down coolest dive bar in town
Iu Ryan: Awesome bar!
Jimmy Feng: A nice hidden spot in the middle of Vancouver with probably one of the most affordable happy hours in town. Cocktails were good and servers were are super attentive, especially with such a small amount of staff.Would highly recommend this place to anyone
Kristina Rivera: Speakeasy perfection
Kass Woods: Cool spot. Bumpin.
Jacqueline: Affordable bar food and great happy hour until 7
W T: Glad to see the Narrow has stayed true with delicious moderate size delicious and inexpensive food and a unique vibe from its shape! Love the no sign still, dont change you Narrow minded owners! Go there i decree.
Aida Nejadi: We came here on our first night in Vancouver it was such a vibe. The place looks sketchy from the outside.It was a small bar with great tunes.
christina ws chow: GREAT happy hour and super friendly service.
Mike Rhone: Like my jeans after a big turkey dinner there’s not much room but like my belly after a big turkey dinner I’m pretty stoked
Vinay Punjabi: Seating issues,very cramped
Jose Rojas: Fun little dive. Went on a Sunday and it was still full of people enjoying the place.
Bryan Dott: Best bar in town.
Anna Bulgakova: I left my scarf at the bar and called to inquire about it. The response I received was that I had to physically come to the bar to check for it. I explained that I lived far away, but was told that no one could check for me unless I was present. I was very frustrated with this lack of service.Eventually, I went to the bar and asked a bartender to check the lost and found for my scarf. He gave me a disapproving look, but agreed to check. However, 15 minutes passed and he still hadn't checked. When I asked him about it, he said he was too busy. I noticed that there were only two staff members working on a busy Friday night, and as a result, tables were unattended and my margarita was poorly made.After waiting for some time, the bartender finally checked for my scarf and told me it wasn't there. However, I was certain that it was, so I asked another staff member to check. She found it immediately. It was frustrating that I had to come all the way to the bar because no one could check over the phone, and then when I got there, the staff member who agreed to check took so long and didn't do it properly.
Tyler Armstrong: The beer was cold as was the service.
Jasmine Sterling: Staff member was extremely rude and confrontational when no tip was left, ruined the entire evening. Also the cocktails weren’t very nice
Toby Thom: Lovely experience despite my poor attitude.I was in a foul mood because I lost my wallet but the bartender on Sunday the 26th was an all star.Put up with my bs and made my night better. Thank you! You're a SaintI will recommend 👌
Eduardo Ayala: Music at a very comfortable level. Great ambiance and that is why is one of my favourite spots in Vancouver
Christopher Hogstead: Love the dank vibes and no TVs on the walls.
yosuf harb: I had been looking forward to this place for a while. Unfortunately the place was dirty, and the drinks were overpriced and mediocre. Staff was lovely- when they could hear you. For a 10'x15' space the music was unfortunately much too loud.
Lim Fong: Was a pretty interesting place! Good vibes and music. Very stuffy inside not much air circulation!

Ventura Room: what do users think?
Tobin Lock: Service was excellent.
Layla Chen: Strawberry basil spritz, Cheeky Thai chilirye… we ended up ordered 4 drinks and they were all awesome.
Zoe Paquet: water was 10/10
Vanessa Siemens: Great vibe and great food and drink options. The cocktails are not only delicious, but they are also beautifully presented. They have a great happy hour, and their cauliflower bites are now amongst my favourite.The lighting inside is perfect and it is a great place for a meal or to meet friends for drinks. It is a good spot to go after a show at the QE theatre as well.
Joe W: Fantastic atmosphere and service. Loved the mix of luxury and classic, in a dim modern setting that was fun!
Nicolaas Bestbier: The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The background noise was a bit too much though, was hard to have a conversation.
Jamie Twohig: Great space, tasty drinks, and friendly staff. I had a group of 30 here for my birthday. Ventura management (I dealt with Emily) were so accommodating and the server working this section (Hannah) was an absolute all-star. Thanks for a great night all :)
E.B. Gilligan: Staff were attentive. Food menu is very limited, quality okay. The venue is extremely loud and we picked it for the proximity to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre but it was very difficult to have a conversation in the noise so as a place to socialize before or after theatre it's not good.
Meghan Hill: Cool bar
Al Post: Food is great here, as is the service. I’ve been here three times and the only complaint is that this is the second time in a row that they haven’t been able to offer their full menu.
Graham: Great food and atmosphere. Will definitely be back
stephen milton: Beautifully lit, dark and intimate cocktail spot.
Eric: Went for drinks after 10pm. Nice place, great vibes, drinks okay, but the service is subpar. Waited 15min before our server came around to take our orders, and it was difficult to get the servers attention.
Jason Hale: These folks love their rectangular aluminum trays, you will see them on your table as far as the eye can see. I quite like the space physically, that old school Hollywood vibe. Food wise...meh. Parmesan wings are named for the light sprinkle of parmesan on top. The Guac dip order must have had at least a quarter of an avocado in it. I will say I didn't mind the tacos, generous portion. I did not find the service particularly attentive, but the manager was a really good dude - no I didn't ask to speak to him. Overall I'm not sure what to make of this place, menu needs some work for sure.
Kitty: Amazing experience. The BEST cocktails I have had. Went for the "By The Fire" and was thrilled with it. The smokey flavour was so good. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere was great, overall a fantastic experience. Highly recommend.
Brix Mas: Goshdarn good cocktails 🍸I got a Smokey cacao+orange bourbon. Amazing.Bittersweet symphony went well with it too.Finished off with an NSFW and The Local. Also very complimenting palate wise.Prepare to spend $$$
Kershaw Brake: Second time trying out Ventura room prior to a concert. My husband and I made a reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival. Everything was fantastic! Every single person working was smiling. We were checked on regularly throughout our entire visit not too much not too little. The food came out fresh and cooked to perfection and the drinks were absolutely delicious. I will come to this restaurant every time we come out to Vancouver for any reason. Thank you so much!
Debbie Mo: Was searching online for “happy hour bars near me” and found this gem! It was quiet for a Thursday night - probably because of the rain.Music is at the right volume - high enough for you to vibe to, but also quiet enough for you to have a conversation.The server was really nice. I asked her to recommend a drink for me, she recommended the “Cucumber Mint cocktail”. Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan - but she offered to get me a new drink at no extra cost. She recommended the Cosmo, and it was a hit!I ordered the Chipotle Chicken Tacos - and they were so huge, juicy and filling.I’ll definitely come back again
the Devlin: Wow such a hidden gem !Great food and drinks with fair prices too
Luis Carlos Baez De La Fuente: I was going to the whitecaps game and stop by for a drink! Mariana, the host was really kind and make the wait past fast! Also the manager Jeff was awesome ! Loved the food and dinks ! Highly recommended !!
Erica Clyburn: Waited over an hour for my food and ages between the 2 drinks we had. They delivered 2/3 of my parties food (which was cold) and said they’d be right back with mine and never returned. The waitress came over with the bills and I asked where my food was and she had no idea. I was now late for a show and they had a reservation coming in in 15 mins at our table so we left. They removed my food from my bill but added another member of my parties food on my bill and didn’t discount anything... Staff was super nice and mentioned they were having staffing issues but will not be returning.

The Keefer Bar: what do users think?
Roger Chan: Excellently crafted drinks.
Michael MacFynn: Great experience thanks for the daiquiris!
Anita Mistry: Amazing place with yummy drinks and delicious food! I was visiting Vancouver and this place was suggested to us by multiple people. The ambience is great with dark lighting. We sat at the bar and all the bartenders was super friendly. Our bartender Asia made perfect drinks and had great suggestions. Asia was very friendly and helped us feel very comfortable.
Andy Chiang: This is a cool little bar in Chinatown that plays homage to its roots with its interior decoration and food offering. And I will say, this is probably the BEST value happy hour that you can get in Vancouver.First, for happy hour, they have specially selected cocktails, a beer, and a couple of alcohol pours. It’s very rare that you can find a well made cocktail from a top notch bar like this one, with happy hour pricing ($6-8).Next, all of their snacks and dim sum are 50% off during happy hour, meaning you can pay anywhere from $3-$6 for your food items.Finally, every cocktail you order is well crafted and a lot of thought and creativity are put behind them. The service is good, and the vibes are awesome.There’s a reason why there’s usually a line-up outside this place, and they certainly deliver. Note: because of its location, there can be some less than welcoming people around, sometimes hanging out on the patio outside for a quick break. Otherwise definitely worth checking out!
Arin Doruk Celikel: Always the best in Van
Edwin Singh: Great cocktails. Nice small bar with very cool colors, decor and vibe. Worth the try. Recommend the Rosemary Gimlet
Harman Singh: The person on the entrance was very rude, didn’t have any manners to talk to the customer.
Kate McMay: One of the best places in the city for cocktails hands down. I’ve sat at the bar a few times and it’s great to see the bartenders work but it would be awesome if the staff spoke up when they notice some guests leaning into other guests. With the seats being so close together and the alcohol flowing, some people have no respect for personal space which is so limited at the bar. Happy to enjoy a tight space if I don’t have to feel like I have to be ready for someone to continually lean / bump into me.
Lizeth Pavon: Delicious appetizers and drinks. Love the ambience too! Thank you for a wonderful experience! 😊 🌊💛🌊🙏🏽✨
Danielle: Too many cocktails to choose from, but that's always a good thing!
Kira Jones: This is one of the best dining experiences I have had in BC so far! Best cocktails I have had in a long time. The lighting sets a relaxed mood and everyone is very friendly. Huge drinks variety and the food is extremely flavorful. Over all excellent!
Hiro Taira: Great experience with my friends from out of town. The fire pit outside is perfect for a spring night drink
Lynnea Van: Such a fun environment! A small little gothic style martini bar with amazing staff and wonderful cocktails! I'm only mad I hadn't heard of this place sooner!
Nigel Armstrong: Loved the vibe at the bar and I really enjoyed the cocktails. Bartender was super great! I would definitely recommend a visit.
Minh Ly Bui: Excellent selection of unique cocktails, all very tasty. Bar tender very attentive and very safe for ladies going by themselves. Saw an incident where bartender saw an expression from a lady n kept her safe strangers. Kudos to u guys! Keep up the great service!
Saide Nur ALP (saide’s): The best shots in town(key lime)! The place has an elegant vibe, friendly staff, but little portions.
Flora: BEST cocktail bar! Went on a wednesday night and got thier rosemary gimlet on special and a dragon fly. Both drinks presented beautifully and tasted scrumptiousn. From the fish tank in the wall, to the resin countertops, the vibes are off the wall and perfect way to enjoy a drink. The live performer also played great music to set the tone. Parking is free but reccomened to transit here due to the sketchy area. The building looks plain on the outside and unassuming but it feels like you walk into another world as soon as the door is open Will definitely come back here again!
Bnj: Love it!Must try to espresso martini
Christine Taylor: I absolutely love this place. It’s been a while since I been, but I celebrated a couple birthdays here and it’s a really cool vibe. The Rosemary Gimlet is top!!
Jason Scharf: Keefer bar understands hospitality like few establishments do. Well done.
Mariam T: Amazing Service!The Keefer Bar has left the best impressions! Hospitable hosts, delicious dishes, beautiful presentation, and wonderful alchemist doing her magic creating Devine drinks. I recommend to everyone! I would like to come back here again and again.

The Diamond: what do users think?
bond skill: AIslinn was amazing ❤️ Always the best drinks in town!
Nicole Yuen: It’s shockingly hot in the small back room. No airflow on a warm day. Didn’t last more than 5 mins sadly. Staff was nice while we were there though lol
Ohad Okon: Wonderful drinks served by super knowledgeable and friendly bartenders (I sat at the bar). The atmosphere is wonderful. I had the charcuterie board and enjoyed it tremendously but if you’re hungry and want anything else I would probably say eat before then come here for drinks as (other than charcuterie) they only have snacks (appetizers). I highly recommend coming here 😊
Emi: Great cocktails, snacks and atmosphere.
Lisa Belle Lim: The cocktails are lovely, but mostly the service is so good. Our server was really kind and attentive even when it was busy and the bar gave us free shots for moving tables to let a large group come in. We really appreciated the fun atmosphere.
Pantoja: Someone should give credit to the kitchen. Everything that they do is exceptional.
C Wong: I love this place and used to frequent the bar after work. Now that my work has returned to Vancouver, I plan to go more often. Best cocktails from unassuming bartenders. Arguably one of the best bars in Gastown.
Preston Schwartz: Don't listen to Thomas.
Thomas Dodds: Thomas is the best bartender I’ve ever had. Amazing personality and so handsome.
Alejandro Hernandez: Love the cocktails! They have so many and they all taste very good!Place is nice and love the atmosphere(A bit noisy for my taste tho)Music, in my perspective, do not fit the vibe of the barI WILL COME AGAIN
Luke Schuss: My first negative review in 15 years in Vancouver! We came in after dinner for a quick cocktail. Our first server was very friendly and gave good recommendations on drinks. The drinks were nice and enjoyable.Halfway through our drinks, we noticed a couple of mice running around our feet. Not ideal, but understandable-- it's an old building in Gastown. We decided to quickly move tables to get away from the mice.Couple minutes later, our second server comes and rudely scolds us for changing tables without asking her. Normally I would've asked before moving, but given the persistence of the mice around our feet and abundance of empty tables, I figured there wouldn't be a problem.We paid our bill immediately and left. The drinks were good and the atmosphere was fun, but the second server's treatment of us was so bizarrely rude that we'll never be back.
Maffo Harlingen: Interior decor was great, cocktails were fine, but the music was too loud
Mrs P: Nice cocktails but way too loud, ambience was more like a pub, which was disappointing.
V: Sat at the bar and the tenders were top notch. Friendly and personable, with an emphasis on experience. And the experience? Bar none. Will absolutely be back to this gem 😍
Ethan McDonald: This place makes the best Old Fashioned you'll ever try. It's been a while since I visited, September 2022, to be exact. But I figured I should leave a review since I've spoken highly of this place to friends, since.On a summer evening, this is the place to be. It was very relaxing to sit by an open window on a second floor bar and watch the busy Gastown street below. Really interesting little bar, knowledgeable bartenders, and high quality drinks. Next time I'm in Vancouver I will be in a hurry to come back to this place. I've tried many cocktail bars in my days and this one is certainly one of the best in Western Canada.
Jimmy Feng: Great location and ambiance. Cocktails are reasonably priced and bartender’s definitely know what they are doing.The only downside is it seems a lot harder to get a table at this place especially with their very short timeframe to return for your table. Estimates are often very inaccurate and you don’t have enough time for you to settle up a bill somewhere else to make your way back. Pretty much have to wait and hope for the best.
Drew Brinton: Great drink mixes!
Layla Chen: MALIBU was really great$16COCONUT WASHED TANQUERAY GIN | DRY VERMOUTH | SALTED APEROL | STRAWBERRY | DILL
Audrey Aubertin: Good service by the sommelier or wine guy, good chatting with him. Wine was good. We sat at the bar but not interaction from the barman what so ever not even a “how’s your evening ladies or something” very average atmosphere. Lovely hosting staff though.
Sreekanth Banka: Not a great place. We were seated in The hideaway that had seperate menu. The drinks and food were very underwhelming.
Liz Gleadle: The blackberry drink, the service, the environment, and the staff were all phenomenal! Every time I go here, I love it 🙌🏻

The Shameful Tiki Room: what do users think?
Foodie Vancouver: The Shameful Tiki Room has an excellent atmosphere and decor. I thoroughly enjoyed the performances, and the cocktails were generously poured. However, the food could use some improvement.
Noah Hamilton: girl i’ll be back tomorrow
Nathan D Silva: Really nice place to get a couple of drinks with friends. The drinks are good value for money and will definitely get you tipsy/drunk quick so order carefully. Lots of options and all are really good.Their food is also pretty decent however I do wish they have a bit more meat on their ribs!
Raquel Ortega: From out of town where there are no tiki rooms. This bar was so wonderful and such a fun theme but also, the drinks are amazing! Great place for a casual hang, girls night, first date, first stop for drinks, you name it. When you walk in, it's dark. Your eyes will adjust. Also make sure to hit up the bathroom. Very moody, cool aesthetic. GREAT PLACE 10/10
Jacob Crist: Great tiki bar. Lots of classics and a few unique "in spirit" drinks. Decor is awesome and the prices were fair. Didn't get food but the drinks were classic.
Megan Young: Such a fun environment with great drinks and great staff. Warning: it is very dark, so be prepared if you're going from inside to outside.
Nima Alaeiilkhchi: interesting place. food was okay and not that great. service was also mediocre.
Alawy Sharifa: Good
Marco Bossow: This is the only real Tiki bar in town. The decor, atmosphere, staff and most importantly, drinks are all top notch. From the classics to house creations, these guys don't mess around. I've been here over a dozen times and only one time were the drinks mediocre - perhaps a different bartender that one time. Other than that, always hits the spot!Food is surprisingly excellent too. Their Nachos are amazing!Prices are reasonable all around, their specials are a steal. Reservations highly recommended.
Jun Yan: Great selection of drinks and food. Always busy and lively. Love their atmosphere.
Martin Wieronski: Great place for drinks and food.
Lior Madnick: We had a the Volcano Bowl and almost burned our eyebrows off, solid 10/10 experience would do again.
Hillery Juul: My husband is a tiki enthusiast. Thankfully we have 'Hale Pele', one of the top 3 rated tiki bars in the world about an hour drive from our house.Every time we travel we seek out local tiki bars, and we're usually unimpressed. This was our first visit to Vancouver, BC. We came across 'The Shameful Tiki Room' and it's definitely competing with some of the big names in tiki, including 'Smugglers Cove' in San Francisco.We rate Shameful Tiki Room higher than the San Francisco tiki scene.Great job!
Ben Henriquez: Excellent place to go with a group of friends. I recommend going with at least a group of 4 to try out the bowls they have.
Maanik Puri: Great tasting food and amazing Ambiance!
Wheels: Really cool place to go for drinks if you can get a table. Definitely recommend making reservations, but we were lucky and got a table. Very fun place, drinks are delicious and the food is okay, I thought the sliders were the best. Very fun place to go have some drinks in a unique place. We definitely will be back!
Sreehari V.P: Highly recommended
Mark Flaming: Leave the outside world at the door enjoy some of the best cocktails in the city and relax in this kitsch tropical paradise.The food is pretty good too.Also.... reservations are highly recommend! There are usually rather long wait times for a table.
M L'Esperance: We are lucky to have a top notch Tiki bar here in Vancouver. Technically it's a restaurant and the food is quite decent, and not overpriced, but the reason to come here is for the absolutely authentic and delicious cocktails made with precision and panache.Rivalling the experience one gets at famous Tiki locations like Hale Pele in Portland and Smugglers Cove in San Fran, and Tiki-ti in LA, the drinks and ambiance are faultless.Some people come in not fully realizing what a fortunate town we are to have authentic Tiki drinks perfectly presented in such a finely crafted environment. This is not a place for real Polynesian cuisine or traditional Hawaiian food. It's about the beverages, like all great Tiki establishments past and present. The drinks are made with bespoke ingredients to exacting standards and with finely measured consistency. No sweet tutti-frutti sticky with grenadine drinks here.Demand for reservations is justifiably through the roof, so plan ahead.
liam reale: Loved the vibes, cocktails were good and we were treated to some theatrics too. Chips to salsa ratio was all wrong and to charge $3 for more salsa was shameful indeed, I may return for the cocktails all the same
R Douglas: Fun atmosphere! The beverages are delicious!

1927 Lobby Lounge: what do users think?
LA OC LAW GROUP fighttrafficticketking: The perfect setting for relaxing and chilling out, with great services .
Jesse Turner: Genuinely friendly and wonderful staff with the best cocktail game out there. Tucked away at the edge of the lobby with a very classy and cozy vibe.
justin lewis: Great spot with an amazing staff
Adriana Barragan: Muy agusto!
Petro Klimashewsky: Classy establishment!
Cristal Waldrop: Excellent food, excellent service, great relaxing atmosphere
Mike Robbins: Amazing bar with a great atmosphere
Austin Kenny: Great service, beautiful room, and comfortable furniture. The menu is small but has options for all preferences. We ordered the charcuterie board and a bottle of Prosecco. They have live music on Saturday nights which was nice.
Paul S.O. Barbeau: Good experience, but bar closes early. There's room for improvement.
M H: Wonderful service, peaceful room. Great Bloody Mary!
Android Curbot: A great hotel breakfast in an odd setting, but it works. Don't think I didn't notice the leather coasters 🤑
Raphael T.: The staff is very professional and their service was impeccable. This bad review is about the aweful meat and cheeseboard that was served. In fact, it's possibly the worst cheese board I've ever had in my life and strongly suspect the chorizo and salami and cheese came from Shoppers ! It even looked like the Shopper's/PC cuts. That's how plasticky everything looked and tasted.
ns a: Great atmosphere, interesting art, and the best live music on Sataday 17th February! Excellent food, drinks and service.
Michael Xu: It brought tons of memories. Love the deco. Nice service. Will make it a regular stop.
Linda Xing: BAD SERVICE possibly racist. My husband (white Canadian) and I (Asian Canadian) visited the 1927 lounge quite often and had always had decent service, sometimes exceptional service. Today was the first time I visited the lounge with a friend who is also Asian and we got the worse service ever. Our waitress was aloof and cold, 'nose up the air ' type. We didn't get side plates and had to eat our first dish on the same plate. She never checked on us even once, no water refill. She looked annoyed when we wanted another drink. It was awful
Avinaash Kapil: Great aesthetic, service, and cocktails
Scarlet Redpath: I feel i must write about the experience we had here - we came for drinks and had some charcuterie. For $34 one would expect prosciutto, Brie, good quality salamis and fine cheeses but the board came with triangles of orange cheddar and deli ham. It was completely disappointing and not luxurious in any way. The price point for what was served was ridiculous. What was served cannot be passed as anything resembling fine dining unfortunately. I would really look into fine tuning what is being served on the charcuterie boards.
Sarah Wu: Our go to casual lunch spot whilst shopping in Vancouver downtown..This delightful spot is inside the Hotel Georgia..get a table at the back, very cozy to catch up with friends over lunch.Decor is elegance old world charm.Food menu is limited, today we ordered the Turkey club with salad and Burger with fries, drinks menu is extensive.The washroom off the lobby is renovated, ladies washroom has a nice sit down touch up area including perfect Ring light to touch up your face.Not cheap but great hideaway to hang out with your bestie.
Pamela J Pes: Great hidden gem in vancouver. When all the other lobby bars are busy come here for some peace and quiet.
Alanna Reddemann: Beautiful, great service very expensive!
Catherine Ho: We arrived at the lounge for a drink. The waiter told us to wait as there were no tables. The next customer came in, and was told they he was in line after "these guys". He then told him that the wait was 30 to 40 minutes.We left, as we were not told about the wait time. And we did not appreciate to be called "these guys". That was disrespectful.
